BALTIMORE — Jacob deGrom took a four-hitter into the eighth inning, Curtis Granderson hit two solo homers and the New York Mets beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-3 Tuesday night to snap a three-game losing streak.

Granderson connected off Kevin Gausman (2-5) on the game’s second pitch and homered again in the fifth, then deGrom made the lead stand for the first-place Mets.

Baltimore had won four straight.

New York has won nine in a row against the Orioles dating back to June 2010.

The shaggy-haired deGrom (12-6) gave up one run, five hits and a walk in 7 2-3 innings. The right-hander struck out six and lowered his ERA to 1.98, second-best in the National League behind the Dodgers’ Zack Greinke.

Making his first appearance at Camden Yards, the 6-foot-4 deGrom extended a run of impressive starts — he’s 9-2 with a 1.44 ERA in 16 starts since May 11.
